Hotels in Florida

Just two blocks from the St. Johns River, this three-story home has been carefully restored since it was built in 1902 as the home of a well-to-do entrepreneur. A pitched gable roof shelters the 600-square-foot main house, which has six uniquely decorated rooms.

The hotel has four-person suites with full kitchenettes—plus monkeys and the chance to swim with manatees!

Just 20 minutes from downtown Orlando, the Bay Hill Club & Lodge is owned by golf legend Arnold Palmer, also known as the King. Winner of the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award, Palmer still lives and plays on the resort during the winter.

While most guests book their stay at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek to visit neighboring Disney World, anywhere else, the hotel would be a destination unto itself.

446-room resort on a barrier island 35 miles from Jacksonville. All rooms have private balconies with coastal views. A roster of daily activities includes guided nature walks along sand dunes and evening bonfires.

Over-the-top decor is this boutique hotel's trademark: crystal chandeliers and tufted throne-like seating in the main area complete the art decor decor. The three story hotel is located on South Beach's Collins Avenue, making it popular with those looking frequent the nearby party scene.

Registered with the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation as a historic landmark, the Chesterfield’s iconic white building has been used as a hotel since 1926.

An old-guard establishment created in the 1880's, which now has 319 beachfront rooms.

The closest to the action of the three on-site Universal hotels, the Spanish Mission–style Hard Rock, managed by Loews, is a 10-minute walk from Universal Studios and from the CityWalk nightlife zone.

This hotel is practically large enough to be a city unto itself, and it has the recreation areas to match. The newly redesigned outdoor area features four pools, four whirlpools, a kids’ splash area, two 200-foot winding water slides and one 90-foot speed slide.

The pool here is on the small side, but its rooftop location, South Beach vibe and city views make it a local favorite. Grab a cocktail and find a slice of sunshine at this downtown location; it's also fantastic at sunset with the lights and sounds of the city as a backdrop.

You'll feel a bit as if you're a guest at a rock star's private pool as you luxuriate poolside at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando. Music is piped in underwater as you swim, and the sand beach, two hot tubs and 260-foot pool slide provide an oasis worthy of rock 'n' roll royalty.
